“Outstanding!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We loved every minute of our stay at Oceanside Meadows. The food was wonderful and the people were charming and attentive. We will go back again and again as we could never get enough of this B&B. Thanks to everyone who made this trip so memorable and fantastic! This one is a must-see and must-stay.

This place was a big disappointment - first of all, the woman that checked us in insisted that we all four sit down in the parlor and hear her thirty minute presentation of the area. Complete with handouts. She took up our valuable time tediously turning pages in a book and showing us pictures. We thought we would never get out of there. BORING!
The decor is Early American Garage Sale.
Our bathroom was so small you had to practically sit sideways on the toilet.
I would ot recommend this place.

My husband and I have been staying a few nights each summer at Oceanside Meadows for eight years. Our most recent stay was in mid August. Each year we have tried a different room either in the captain's house or the farmhouse. Our longest stay was in July 2005 when we booked the entire inn for our daughter's wedding. It's always pleasant to be welcomed back and greeted by the staff or someone in the owner's family. The rooms are all different and each has its charms, naturally I've preferred some over others. After all these are rooms in old homes- they are not meant to be modern hotel rooms- that's the point! The rooms are always immaculate and beds are clean and comfortable. I look forward all year to the special breakfasts at Oceanside. As a vegetarian, it is such a special pleasure to eat these elegant breakfasts of a fruit soup, some sort of bread, and unbelievable entrees. I always take pictures of each course, just so I can remember these special meals. My husband and I both enjoy the sitting rooms, the fires in August, the well kept gardens, and the beach just across the road. Just writing this review brings back such fond memories- I only wish I could visit in spring or fall. But as a teacher, summer for a few more years is my only opportunity to enjoy this special place Downeast.

Room Tip: There really isn't a bad room- I tend to prefer oceanfront because we love hearing the sounds of...

If you're looking for an asbolute, complete escape from civilization (no cell connection, internet, TV) this is the place. This B&B falls extremely short of being anything close to the description in the advertisement! The building is old and shabby and not at all what the picture shows. We rode past the place several times looking for "the real thing". The disappointment was overwhelming. We booked room #2 which touted an oceanview (at an additional price too!). Well, it did have an oceanview - across the street and over the horizon. Our bathroom was literally the smallest in the inn -- 2 1/2 ft. wide. Don't expect to close the door and sit on the toilet at the same time. And as you did sit, your chin hung over the 8" sink which has a window above it that overlooked the room behind. We are two "average built" individuals and had a difficult time taking a shower -- we needed to literally squeeze between the sink and the wall to get in and out. The breakfast, advertised as "gourmet" consisted of a puried fruit cold "soup" (course #1), a slice of fruit bread or scone (course #2), and very dry blueberry pancake or french toast (course #3). No protein or fresh fruit. Everything was served with a "flower" on top -- gourmet? Initially we were greeted by a lovely woman named Margaret who simply overloaded us with information about the all the trails and natural elements of the surrounding grounds. Unfortunately our 3 night stay was dampened with rain and an abundance of mosquitos. The trail to the "private beach" was over a little swamp ground (across the road) which was not very appealing. We did enjoy touring Acadia Park, taking the ferry over to Bar Harbor, a couple of very nice resturants on the peninsula (Fisherman's as one!), and the extremely warm and friendly charm of the people. We would definitely NOT EVER GO BACK OR RECOMMEND THIS INN. If you do choice so ---- please, please avoid room #2!!!!
P.S. - other than the person who served breakfast, we didn't see any other "staff"!

Room Tip: Be cautious of your expectation when booking this place --- if you're looking for complete/absol...

This inn is lovely, the inn keepers charming and the staff delightful.
Casual and friendly, we were made comfortable from the moment we arrived.
The rooms we had (we were a party of seven in four different rooms) were
Each pretty and clean, one large, three smaller, but all nicely bedroom sized,
Not suite sized! this is an old house, not a new hotel, after all. and the beds
were uniformly Comfortable!!!!, None of us are spring chickens, and though we
do not mind stairs, a comfy bed is a necessity.
We walked on the beach, explored the lovely grounds and gardens,
Played board games and enjoyed each other's company.
Breakfast was surprising and healthy, with fruit, baked eggs,
Homemade breads and good coffee,fresh juices. I felt
Very spoiled.
we took the innkeepers advice on meals and views and were delighted
With the results. we are planning a return next summer already,
As we were seduced completely by the sounds of the ocean and the
Aromas of the gardens.
Beth and Margaret made us welcome and comfortable, Caleb is
My hero in the kitchen!

Room Tip: Ask the innkeepers!

The picture of the inn and information on the home page were very deceiving. As a matter of fact, we drove past the inn, since it didn’t look anything like the picture on the website. When we finally decided this was the place, we walked in the back door and were immediately disappointed as it was not as well kept as one would expect. We were greeted by a pleasant woman who gave us a lot of information about activities in the area, etc. We never saw the owners. We booked rooms #2 and #4 in the main building which looked really nice on the website. Our friends chose room #2 which was small and the bathroom was about 2 1/2 ft wide. If one sat on the toilet, your chin would be on the sink. The shower was small and our friends (normal size people) had to squeeze between the sink and wall when getting out of the shower. In retrospect they should have requested another room, but did not. Room #4 was adequate...had a little more room in the bathroom since the sink was in the bedroom. The furniture was something one would find on a curb. The bed was comfortable, but the comforter was torn and the bed skirt was hanging on the floor. Positive things were that the bath towels were nice, the sheets were clean and when we opened the windows the sound of the ocean was wonderful. The "gourmet" breakfast in our opinion was satisfactory, but we expected something really special. After three days, the cold soups became boring (first course). Each day the second course was some kind of bread, which was good and the third course on the first day was blueberry pancakes with not enough blueberries and they were dry. The second day, we had quiche which was tasty and the third day, French toast. Too many carbs and sugar, so one of our friends and I ordered scrambled eggs. We overheard from another guest that we could order eggs, but were never informed of this option. The wait staff was pleasant and efficient. We would have enjoyed more fresh fruit. The dining rooms were lovely with nice china and table settings. We did not explore the grounds since it was humid and the mosquitos were buzzing around. There were also no TVs or cell phone reception in the inn or immediate surrounding areas. If you like to be in a remote, quiet area and aren’t too particular, then this is the place for you. We have no intentions of going back. If you do decide to book, I recommend that you get more information about the room and bathroom size…DO NOT BOOK room #2!

Room Tip: No AC, only a single fan in the room. Check the size of rooms before booking.

Simply fantastic, from the moment I stepped through the door to the moment that I reluctantly had to bid goodbye and return to the ´rat race´. I cannot speak highly enough about this charming historic inn. The inn keepers, Sonja and Ben, have preserved not only an authentic inn that oozes history but they have also kept alive that special Maine welcome. This warm and friendly couple have worked very hard so that you don´t have to !! They ensure that you receive just as much or as little help as you need. Sonja personally ensures that the 3 to 4 course breakfast really is the most important meal of the day! The superb breakfast alone, that is included in the very reasonable room rate, makes this beautiful inn a must to visit. Delicious fresh homemade bread and muffins, pancakes and waffles, eggs cooked just how you like them, pungent fresh coffee etc. and all beautifully served often with delightful edible flowers freshly picked from the Inn´s stunningly beautiful gardens and nature preserve. Neither could I find fault with the very high standard of comfort of my beautiful seaview room. One can enjoy all the old worldly ambiance of this historic inn, its antique and traditional furnishings and yet not lack for any of life´s modern amenities. Oceanside Meadows is the perfect spot from which to explore all that this pristine coastal area has to offer. They´ll help you to experience the unique unspoilt habitat that´s literally right on their doorstep. Don´t be surprised if you catch a glimpse of a magnificient moose, or a busy beever or one of the many beautiful and rare bird species such as blue heron, eagles, hawks loons, ravens and owls to name but a few...Make sure you explore the wonderful ´Salamander´and ´Heron´ nature trails that they´ve created in the extensive grounds of the property. Remember also that you´re overlooking the inn´s immaculate white sandy beach, perfect if your travelling with your kids. There they can run wild, paddle in the gentle waters of the bay or build san castles while you enjoy a little sun or a snooze. If you´re feeling energetic then go for a gentle cycle tour of the nearby Schoodic Acadia Park. Then of course there is the local Corea Harbor where you can see the lobster fisherman bringing home their catch...fancy tasting one of these magnificent critters?.. couldn´t be easier, allow Ben and Sonja to recommend one of the many fine restaurants in the locality. Oceanside Meadows really has it all and they are there to help you do just as much or as little as you choose to do. I´ll definately be coming back...it´s truly feels like a home from home and furthermore I´ve promised myself that my next vacation I´ll take advantage of the sea kayak sunset tour that leaves from right off the beach next to the inn and go paddling along the rocky coastline past coves and headlands to Corea and admire the spectacular sunsets of these northern climes. For sure, I´m one rat who´ll definately be coming back!!!

We encourage you to discover the serenity and hospitality of Schoodic Peninsula, located in the heart of beautiful Downeast Maine. The buildings of our Inn stand on 200 acres at the head of Sand Cove in picturesque Prospect Harbor.At Oceanside Meadows we have two very specific goals: to ensure that you have an extraordinary experience staying at our historic inn and to introduce you to our ever-evolving 200 acre nature preserve.

My wife and I, who have a background in science and conservation, are committed to the preservation of this extraordinary place. Oceanside Meadows marries all that you would expect from a historic inn that has been open since 1860 with an unparalleled opportunity to explore and to understand Maine's environment and natural splendor.We invite you to join us here for a relaxing respite on the ocean. Be lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf on our private sandy beach. Individually appointed bedrooms are lavishly furnished with your comfort in mind. Our rooms feature ocean and meadow views, private baths, flowers from the garden, and the refreshing sea breeze. Enjoy hearty gourmet breakfasts in our gracious dining room as you watch the lobster boats ply the Atlantic just yards away. Feast on wild blueberry pancakes, specialty omelets, homemade breads and other delights. We are glad to cater to vegetarian and other dietary needs. Our unique sandy beach is a great place to have a picnic, to lie in the sun or to take a dip in the brisk Atlantic. Explore the rugged coastline, tidal pools, and lighthouses; spot an eagle or osprey overhead; try sea kayaking, yachting, fresh water canoeing. Head out on a real Maine Lobster boat, see the seals basking in the sun, whales breaching, the puffins at Petit Manan Light, on your way back in to the dock pull lobster traps, truly immersing in the real wonders of the Downeast Maine coast. Try the trails of Acadia National Park at Schoodic 5 mins away or our own just behind the Inn. ... more   less
